    Yeah I took mine off the charger about 45 minutes ago and I am already down to 80%. This is not good. Looks like there is a media process that is once again eating my battery. I am still not sure what this is and what I can do to prevent it from happening. If I end the process it goes away but I really need to get to the root of the problem.

    :icon_ laughup: Good karma for not smashing my Droid X to bits when the battery would only last 3 hours.

    Why would we have to do a factory reset? Will I lose all my apps and what not? Also how do you do that on ICS?

    I didn't realize that was possible. My battery life hasn't been changed much and yesterday I had 61% battery after 10 hours with light use. I do use SmartActions heavily and disable Data, Wifi, and Sync when the screen is off. This helps my battery life tremendously.

    Can you please explain where in settings you can go to change those options. I've looked and can't seem to find it. That should extend my battery life even further. Thanks in advance!

    I have a bionic so I apologize if it's different but under settings, developer options, background process limit.

    Maybe Timeriffic isn't compatible with ICS. Have you tried using smart actions?

    RAM wise, I'm noticing the same about normally open from when I was on GB. I haven't killed anything all day, and I'm at 319MB free.

    My battery is about the same so far.

    My battery life hasnt changed either way from what I can tell...and everyone isnt gonna like it. My kids mother has been blocking the update on her Nexus S for months.

    I did do a factory reset today to see something. Will have to keep an eye on battery life now to see if it does get better.

    Post-ICS Battery won't charge

    I finally got ICS yesterday morning on my Razr Maxx. Prior to ICS my batter would go two days easily without needing to be charged. By yesterday afternoon my battery was at 30% (so that's what that looks like). I plugged it in to charge on my PC, went on to do my thing. Came back an hour later and it was still at 30%. Odd. Went to bed a bit later and plugged it in to wall charger. Got up this morning, still at 30%.

    What's that about? Is there a setting I need to change? I've gone all through it twice, including Smart Actions, and can't find anything that seems the culprit. Any ideas what is causing this and how to solve it?

    Thank you!
